When All Others Are Gone - Poem by Gert Strydom

They that abstain from hurting
when others lash out
with words and deeds that sting
that do not bring about

pain, when tempted to do so,
who refrain, unmoved when circumstance
demands action and is slow
in judgement and remembrance;

they are true in their brotherhood
as stewards and disciples of the Lord
and their graces are sometimes misunderstood
but sincerity is etched into every deed and word:

and these people stand alone,
true to their core, when all others are gone.
